Health Tip: Keep the Weight Off
-- It's tempting to let good eating habits slide once you've reached your desired weight, but that can mean quickly re-adding those lost pounds.
The Cleveland Clinic suggests how to help you maintain weight loss:
- Cut down on daily calories; work with a dietitian to come up with the ideal caloric intake for you.
- Scale back on sauces, dressings and other condiments. Opt for healthier offerings such as lemon juice, vinegar, herbs and low-calorie marinades.
- Never skip meals or starve yourself. This could cause you to binge eat and pack on even more pounds.
- Eat high-fiber, whole grain foods. Avoid stocking your kitchen with high-fat, tempting foods.
